Back of the bus?

It seems that a private bus company with a public transit contract in Williamsburg wants women to sit at the back of the bus.  Why?  Because of a high concentration of Hasidic Jews in the area.  The bus company is in violation of its contract with the town which explicitly states that they will not discriminate. 

Same town that residents put up signs on the street telling "Precious Jewish Daughters" to step aside when a man approaches them on the sidewalk. 

Sorry for the implied vulgarity, but... WTF, Williamsburg?
